8/2/17 - This is an all-original and correct Colt 1911 from WWI. Serial number dates this pistol to 1918, right near the end of the war. The original bluing rates at around 90%, with browning coming through under the finish on the slide and some bluing loss on the straps. Proper HP marked barrel. Two-tone magazine. Proper military acceptance proof. Bore is a little frosted but nice overall with no major issue.
